Okay, I'm on and after my dad was telling me he was fiddling with the settings on Heimdall so the old numbers don't work and the new numbers and name DO work, I log on and see nobody. Anywhere. Clearly, there's an even more serious problem and we're working to fix it right now.

UPDATE: Everything now looks as though it's up and running, by name and the new numbers but NOT the old numbers. 63.111.162.9 should NOT work, but heimdall.play-hookey.com SHOULD. Reply here if there's any problems.

...I'll post a summary of what I just posted on the FFMux LJ. Put simply, what I was told (that using the name heimdall.play-hookey.com would make the transition to a new ISP painless) was clearly a big steaming load. The majority of people trying to get on seem to be having a major problem using the name or the new IP numbers, only the old numbers (63.111.162.9) seem to be working. That won't last forever, mind you, they'll be phased out May 10. I'm sure this would be fixed by then, but there's no way in hell I'm waiting longer than a day or two. The only reason I'm waiting at all is because it's two in the morning and I can't exactly go waking up the house for this. So when I see someone next tomorrow morning, I'll be getting on their cases immediately. Stay tuned for updates.

Much as we wish we could have, it's no longer feasible for us to keep the same frac T1 we've had for years. It's just too expensive, and getting more so as time goes by. We'll be switching to cable soon. Noone should see a drop in service, since MUXing takes so little bandwidth, but everyone DOES need to make certain they are logging in using the name of the server (heimdall.play-hookey.com) rather than any IP numbers. The name will not change, but the IP numbers will become invalid fairly soon, so please be sure you're using the name.

As far as I can tell, something's going on with Heimdall. ^^ I'll keep people posted as to what's going on.

Edit: 5:09pm. Game's back up. :3

... the games for play-hookey.com are being transferred to a new machine verbatim. Barring serious problems, it should be up within a matter of days. If there /is/ a problem, I have a backup from 8/22, and can restore the game from that point. ^_^

Okay, it looks like BGM is being a booger afterall. I don't know about the rest of you, but I can't seem to connect to the MUX itself. You're all welcome to meet up on Damn Ninja MUX ( yukitsukai.com port 7120 ) in Roleplay Room #3, though I'm not sure if you have to have an approved character to do so or not since it's within the IC area itself.

I'll be there as Natsumi, so page me if you need any help.

Otherwise, we can postpone until next week in hopes that the MUX will be behaving at that time. The meeting will be the same time (Wednesday Night, 7-midnight CST).

Sorry about the inconvenience! I hope to see you next week at the latest!

Firefly RP [Jun. 21st, 2005|11:51 pm]

I know several people have expressed interest in this, so I wanted to arrange a definite date for it.

Starting soon, several players are going to pull together for some informal Firefly rp. Characters, right now, will be first come first serve and we will allow passangers/assorted NPCs into play as well. If we get a full crew, I may resort to running stories because, I'll admit, I just want to see good Firefly rp!

We'll meet this Wednesday night (tomorrow night) anywhere from 7pm-midnight CST in one of the RP ROOMS. Come on in and reserve a character for next week or even toss out some scenario ideas. It's all just friendly, casual play. If you can't make it one week and there happens to be a continuing scene, someone can pick up your character for you (for spoof).

Character swapping is allowed, but for the purposes of these short scenarios, I ask that everyone be as IC as you can manage. That means, no off-the-wall character interpretations. These will be set in the canon universe. Please familiarize yoruself with any character you choose to play.

If this continues for long, scenarios will be episodic, so there doesn't neccessarily need to be continuity between them.

Please comment below, if you'd like to reserve a character for the first scenario, or show up tomorrow night to chat and get a feel for the play group. You can reserve any character not taken then.

My main hope is for everyone to have fun and enjoy a series that got far too little exposure on the network! (okay, and drum up some excitement for the upcoming movie.) Hope to see you there!

...

Well. It's been a hair over a month since the database came back up. And about that long (I think) since the talk of the great fast-forward surfaced... And to date.. well.. I've been wodnering if we could get some more news on how the planning on this is going. I check in on the game oncce or twice a day, as time permits, to see if things are starting to pick up again.

And every day I continue to be disappointed.

I'm befuddled, confused and frankly rather amazed.

I see a lot of the same faces on there every evening.. Raquel.. Chris.. Six, Jecht, Auron (those three are generally rather quiet..) Coralsnake's a real trooper.. she's on every day all day. But other than that..

I did see Lan tonight. Which was cool. We had a nice little talk.

I think that I can speak for everyone who isn't a staffer though when I ask 'Well? What's up guys? Any news?'
